at the Polish Fest in Milwaukee
I like to go to the Polish Fest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I like pizza from Al's in Berwyn with cheese and sausage, jello, Polish food, Family Ties and the White Sox on TV, sports and getting a paycheck.
My mom and my sister, my dad and my step mom, my friend Tom, Mary Jo and Stacy are important people in my life. Going to restaurants is one aspect of being part of the community that I enjoy. I attend Helping Hand Rehabilitation Center and participate in Pathways to Self-Advocacy. My goal was leadership and I got to present to the Employer Advisory Board last March. I was proud, and I got to speak about my goal on the microphone.
